Spend some time with your children. Avoid sporting events, since only a tremendously small percentage of the work force make a dime with sports. Teach them to cut boards; show them how to read a tape measure; mix some concrete and pour a step; show them how to file steel; take apart a small engine and show them how it works; dig a hole and place a fence post; anything but allow them to waste their time playing useless video games, or watching mindless drivel on the television.
Why am I offering this advice? It's because I'm finding it almost painful to see the young people in the work force that are completely clueless. They have absolutely nothing to offer, except brief moments of mental acuity and days of mindless work under my direction. Appalling is the best word I can use and it's sad to realize these are who we'll eventually leave in charge.
Do them a favor and prepare them for the real world. If you don't, you'll find yourself embarrassed when you realize your children can only find jobs where the management is from another country.
In Case You've Wondered
My blog is where my wandering thoughts are interspersed with stuff I made up. So, if while reading you find yourself confused about the context, don't feel alone. I get confused, too.
If you're here for the stories, I started another blog: scratchingforchange.blogspot.com
One other thing: sometimes I write words you refuse to use in front of children, or polite company, unless you have a flat tire, or hit your thumb with a hammer.
I don't use them to offend; I use them to embellish.
